“This appointment is the culmination of an international search to fill the deanship,” said Outgoing President John Waterbury. “The experience, credentials, and quality of those who applied for this position were notable, which indicates the level to which this faculty has risen internationally.”

Dr Waterbury added:

“I know that Dr. Nuwayhid will take the teaching, research and service activities of FHS to new heights, and I know you all join me in congratulating him on his appointment as dean. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank again Dean Huda Zurayk for all of her achievements as dean. I am certain that she will work closely with Dr. Nuwayhid in the coming months to ensure a smooth transition in FHS.”
